  •  With respect, Congressman Kucinich... (11+ / 0-)

    America doesn't torture either, or launch wars of aggression, or imprison people without reason or criminal charges.

    But in the last decade, we have done all of these things.  I no longer put stock in what things the once great American simply would not do.  For this country, and the lawless people we have become, nothing is unthinkable anymore.

    I wish it was not so.  At this point, if we do not default, it will be because our corporate masters have decreed it must not be so.
